    HOWTO: IPv6

    Hello,
    I needed to connect to a server, which was (is) only reachable with IPv6. So, this is how I did setup my IPv6 connection.

    Step 1:
    Download and install Freenet
    Code:
    wget http://go6.net/4105/file.asp?file_id=150 -O go6.tar.gz
    mkdir go6
    cd go6
    tar zxf ../go6.tar.gz
    rm ../go6.tar.gz
    sudo apt-get -y install libcurl4-openssl-dev openssl libcrypto++-dev libpthread-stubs0-dev build-essential
    cd ./gw6c-messaging
    make target=linux exportdir=../tspc-advanced export
    cd ../gw6c-config
    make target=linux exportdir=../tspc-advanced export
    cd ../tspc-advanced
    make target=linux all
    sudo make target=linux installdir=/usr/local/gw6c install
    cd ~
    rm -r go6
    Step 2:
    Create config file
    Code:
    cd /usr/local/gw6c/bin
    sudo rm gw6c.conf #If there are errors here, it's no problem.
    sudo gedit gw6c.conf
    Paste the following and save:
    Code:
    server=anon.freenet6.net
    auth_method=anonymous
    host_type=host
    prefixlen=64
    if_prefix=eth0
    dns_server=208.67.222.222
    gw6_dir=/usr/local/gw6c
    auto_retry_connect=yes
    retry_delay=30
    keepalive=yes
    keepalive_interval=30
    tunnel_mode=v6anyv4
    if_tunnel_v6v4=sit1
    if_tunnel_v6udpv4=tun
    if_tunnel_v4v6=sit0
    client_v4=auto
    client_v6=auto
    template=linux
    proxy_client=no
    broker_list=tsp-broker-list.txt
    last_server=tsp-last-server.txt
    always_use_same_server=no
    log_filename=gw6c.log
    log_rotation=yes
    log_rotation_size=32
    syslog_facility=USER
    Step 3:
    Run Freenet
    Code:
    cd /usr/local/gw6c/bin
    sudo ./gw6c
    If you don't see any errors it should be fine. Wait a minute to give it start-up time and go to this page. If you see something like 'You are using IPv6', everything went fine!

    Unless all of your network envorinment is IPv6 enabled (including your ISP), I doubt you will get any connection.

    If you have it enabled in Ubuntu, and Ubuntu incorrectly thinks that IPv6 is available in your local environment, then that is why things slow down (time-outs waiting for IPv6 responses that can never happen).

    Does this site says you're using IPv6?

    Re: HOWTO: IPv6

    And more important (since newszilla6 is a NNTP server) have you tried
    Code:
    telnet newszilla6.xs4all.nl 119
    in a terminal?
